Gratefulness Challenge Day 20

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! We are half way through the dreariest month of the year. I am also officially 2/3 of the way through my Gratefulness Challenge. Lots of reasons to celebrate and be grateful.

1. Local businesses: So I’m not one of those people that hates corporations.

What a great start to the week.
